Not your Grandfather’s Sports Blog.

Welcome back to the 2010-2011 edition of Daily Goalie Start! For those new to the system, bookmark this page as it will be the one stop shop for starting goalies each night. It will be consistently updated as the season progresses, even more so than last year, now that I have a smartphone!

The reason why I keep this on one page, rather than creating a new page for everyday of the season is because this blog is connected to Bleacherreport, and I don’t want to clog up their webspace. So those of you on B/R, bookmark this page.

Feel free to post in the comment section on any goalie news you hear!

    February 18, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    • haha yeah no kidding. Nice find! thanks…

      I need Claude to start picking it up again.. he has slowed down big time.


      January 14, 2011 at 2:56 pm

      • Yeah, he has. BIG time. It breaks my heart, because he is probably my favorite flyer. He probably shouldn’t have made the all-star game after his slow down. Not to mention briere and richie didn’t make it.

        Ethan Wendt

        January 18, 2011 at 12:30 pm

  11. Found another one: Halak in net for the Blues:
    Makes sense after last nights debacle vs the Ducks with Conklin in net


    January 13, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    • Niiiiice I was literally on that site trying to look for any sort of confirmation!

    • Thanks buddy, you’re a lifesaver. I’m currently in one line of many christmas shopping. Smh


      December 22, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    • According to @rattoCSN

      We’ve been lied to! Niemi will start tonight, rather than Niittymaki for #sharks. That scamp McLellan! #senator


      December 2, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    • Thanks dude. ANother beaut


      November 27, 2010 at 5:20 pm


    Dan Ellis is in for Tampa. About your team: Boyle did have a huge assist last night ;) I assume Niittymäki is in net tonight and against the last placed oilers they shouldn’t have a problem.


    November 27, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    • Awesome find. TBay is inconsistent with news.

      Ya great apple by Boyle :@.. I just sat down at the firkin last night and I saw him make that play and I almost threw my beer at the TV.


      November 27, 2010 at 1:39 pm


    Dubnyk (highly) probable starter for the oilers tonight.


    November 27, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    • Thanks for the find! I really need the Sharks (Thornton, Pavelski, Boyle) to have a big game. I need to get back up the standings fantastically.


      November 27, 2010 at 1:13 pm

  15. No, you’re right. It will be Johnson in net again, unless he happens to get sick.

    Ethan Wendt

    November 27, 2010 at 12:41 pm

  16. Great page, but i’ve noticed lately that Brent Johnson multiple times have been named Penguins starter on the strenght of some odd-ball blogs info, only to not start. Maybe these blogs should go on some no-no list or something.

    Thanks for the page though!


    November 27, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    • Its not actually his fault. A bunch of games in a row now, Johnson was supposed to start, but pulled out right before the game because of the flew. Even Dan Bylsma(the coach) thought that he was going to start. Sometimes its just out of our reach.

      Ethan Wendt

      November 27, 2010 at 12:31 pm

      • Aha i see, that explains his last game being nov. 10th. The thing with my pool, Fantasy Hockey on Facebook, is i dont even know if the one on the bench counts as a game played, anyone know for sure? I tend to think it does’nt even though it saiz Played on Bobrovsky right now. *Facepalm* :)


        November 27, 2010 at 2:20 pm

  17. Boucher should get the start in Philly.


    November 27, 2010 at 11:24 am

    • Is that opinion? Or do you have some insight?
      I too think there is a possibility, and they Flyers haven’t named their starter, which is odd.

      Ethan Wendt

      November 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    • I too think there is a possibility that Boucher will start.**

      Ethan Wendt

      November 27, 2010 at 12:34 pm

      • Check that. I just found info for Boucher starting.

        Good instincts, fellas.


        November 27, 2010 at 12:37 pm

      • Hey guys. Thanks for being active members.

        Sometimes i don’t have control what goes on during pre-game I just go by what I read… But i have a lot of strong sources for Brent Johnson today.

        I dont have any strong sources for the Philly game.. I m looking into it.


        November 27, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    • Thanks again bro. Those finds were huge today.


      November 26, 2010 at 4:51 pm

      • You’re welcome, love the site BTW. To me the most important pre game info is “who’s in net”.


        November 26, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    • Niiiice find. Thanks a lot

      thanks for visiting.


      November 26, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    • Thanks again dude.. you’re a life saver.


      November 19, 2010 at 4:14 pm

  18. Braden Holtby for caps
    Braden Holtby is the first goaltender off the ice for the #Caps so it looks like he’ll get the start against Atlanta

    Ethan Wendt

    November 19, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    • whooaaa.. thaks a bunch E. I was at lunch so I couldnt get a chance to look up some sources.. Glad to see someone is helpin out.

      Thanks again.

  21. Am I the only one that thinks its a little stupid to play a rookie 12 games in a row w/out rest?? I was shocked when I found out he was playing today. He only played 35 games last year, and he is on pace to play double that. It just doesn’t make sense to me, to overwork him this early. @Sergei Bobrovsky

    November 13, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    • AWESOME. Thanks a lot. I was looking all day for confirmation on who is playing.

      What do you think of Carter signing for 11 years?


      November 13, 2010 at 5:33 pm

      • I like it a lot personally. I know a lot of Flyers fans hate on him, just cause he comes and goes, but he is a solid player for around 5 mil. Just what i was hoping. I was a little afraid the price would go up to the 6-6+ range, which i think is a little high. So i think its a good signing. Now the just NEED so re-sign leino.

        Ethan Wendt

        November 13, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    • And no problem on the find. My brother is an avid Penguins fan, so he just told me when he got the tweet. Glad I could help.

    scroll down to the, Flyer writer twitter feed,

    Sarah Baicker says bobs in net.

    Ethan Wendt

    November 7, 2010 at 4:01 pm

  25. I don’t have a source yet, but i’m still thinking it will be bobs. He is 1 win away from tying the flyers rookie win streak record. Gotta give him a shot right?

    Ethan Wendt

    November 7, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    • Good call! Just found a source for Bobrovsky tonight.


      November 7, 2010 at 3:56 pm

  26. NIEMI in for sharks

    Ethan Wendt

    November 4, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    • HUGE Thanks!


      November 4, 2010 at 12:58 pm

      • Yeah no problem man. I get enough help from this site, i just try to help you the few times you need it.

        Ethan Wendt

        November 4, 2010 at 2:31 pm

  27. Although Lalime made his way in there eventually.

    Ethan Wendt

    November 3, 2010 at 7:55 pm

  28. Lalime didn’t start. enrith or whatever his name is did.

    Ethan Wendt

    November 3, 2010 at 6:19 pm

  29. LOL you have Pit and Phi mixed up, unless they just decided to switch goalies for the night?? haha

    Ethan Wendt

    October 29, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    • hahha good eye.. I cleaned it up for you. That sushi lunch must have gotten to my head..


      October 29, 2010 at 2:29 pm

  30. nvm, you beat me to the punch. haha


    October 23, 2010 at 11:58 am

    • hahah.. ooops.. thanks anyways.. almost got all the links for today.


      October 23, 2010 at 1:01 pm

  31. Rotoworld says Johnson for the pens. But their sources seems to be linked incorrectly.


    October 23, 2010 at 11:56 am

  32. Boosh playing for the flyers. check the official twitter feed.

    Ethan Wendt

    October 23, 2010 at 2:09 am

  33. Dude, that team looks really solid. Your forwards look good, and your D looks better, and two very solid goalies. I’m sure your team will turn around once thornton and toews get going.

    Ethan Wendt

    October 21, 2010 at 12:21 am

  34. Niemi – w/ 4 games this week, will he get a mjority of them ?


    October 18, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    • I think he will get at least 2. If he keeps winning, he will get more. I would play it as he goes.

      They gave Nittymaki a lot of money too, so they will give him a good shot at earning his keep.


      October 18, 2010 at 4:11 pm

  35. yeah, you’re absolutely right about Bobrovsky tonight.

    Ethan Wendt

    October 16, 2010 at 12:21 pm

  36. I had heard boucher was starting for flyers… whats your source??

    Ethan Wendt

    October 14, 2010 at 11:58 am

    • awesome find. thanks man.


      October 14, 2010 at 3:24 pm

  37. Boucher is starting for Philly.

    Dan Grant

    October 9, 2010 at 2:25 pm

  38. Nice to see you back this year


    October 7, 2010 at 10:01 am

    • Thansk! Good to be back… hopefully we can all help each other this season. Thanks for checking in, Ben.
